Dad Left Water Rocket Launcher For Daughter, The School Evacuted Thinking It Was A Bomb

A hilarious accident happened with a man and his daughter in the Netherlands after he decided to help the child with homework by building a water rocket.

A hilarious accident happened with a man and his daughter in the Netherlands after he decided to help the child with her homework by building a water rocket. However, the two were absent-minded and caused an entire school to evacuate over concerns about terrorists.

Specifically, a Reddit account under the user name u/MayBroo belongs to a Dutchman. Last year, his 13-year-old daughter asked for his help with a school project in which she had to build a water rocket launcher, which is a popular science trick. It’s safe and allows children to showcase their creativity.

While the students were asked to build the rocket on their own under their parents’ supervisor, MayBroo helped his daughter because he loved the project. “Yeah right, like I am going to miss up on this amazing opportunity to unleash my inner boychild schemes…,” he wrote.

After watching some instruction documents and adding their own details, the two created a big rocket that looked a lot like a real heavy-duty weapon and painted it dark green, giving it a malicious appearance.

According to MayBoo’s post, someone called the principal and threatened to blast the school, authorities quickly brought police dogs there and protected the school. But things escalated after that.

One morning, MabyBroo took his daughter to school as usual but was late for work. Therefore, a while after leaving the school gate, he realized that both he and his daughter forgot to bring the rocket to her class. He immediately turned around, texted his daughter, and said he would leave the rocket at the gate because he was already late and that the girl should pick up the science project later.

Again, because he was late for work, MayBroo dropped the rocket at the school gate in a way that couldn’t be any worse. He opened the door on his car, placed the rocket on the ground, and drove away at once.

Due to this odd action along with the mysterious rocket appearing at the school gate, just minutes later, on his way to work, MayBroo heard hot news about evacuating a school over a terrorism threat.

Sensing that something was wrong, MayBroo came back to the school to a shocking scene. There were bomb squad trucks everywhere, authorities with heavy-duty equipment. More importantly, they were taking his water rocket launcher for a check. It took him a lot of effort to explain to the authority about the rocket that it was not dangerous at all. He even had to show the police photos of this creation.

“I was called into school to meet with the Headmaster and the board members. Went ok, all they went on about is the fact that I neglected that school’s current state of panic and unknowingly caused an unwanted chain of events. With myself being ex-military and them now knowing it, they basically asked me politely not to partake in any upcoming events and not to assist with my kid’s tasks as they are intended for their school marks, and it would be a worthless learning experience if we as parents do all the work… I was just warned.”

The post attracted a lot of opinions from Reddit users, many of whom said that it was too rush and careless of MayBroo. Meanwhile, others showed their compassion and just assumed he was in bad luck.
